I was at a gun shop yesterday and looked at both SX3 sporting and an 1100 Competition and both of them had sloped ribs. The SX3 was almost a ski slope. What options are out there for flat rib semi autos that are not field guns? I know there is the Fabarm XLR5 Flat rib, and then there are a couple of relatively expensive options with adjustable ribs. Other than that what options do I have.

Beretta A400 Xcel and new for this year A300 Sporting don't have that step in the rib just in front of the receiver.

I can't imagine a better gas operated semi for clays than the one you mentioned; Fabarm XLR5 FR.

Don't short change the Remington V3 walnut gun. It is quite affordable in comparison to other specific sporting autos, feeds everything, is soft shooting and handles nicely. I've had numerous versions of semi-auto sporting guns and don't find any of them have anything on the V3 mechanically. Some do have nicer gift wrap.

My SX3 Sporting shoots 1 inch high at 13 yards aiming flat down the rib. That would be 3 inches high at 40 yards. Winchester claims the gun is set up to shoot 60/40. The gun is a soft shooter and runs flawless. I believe the Mossberg 930 Sporting is set up to shot flat.

Let’s not forget the Beretta 391 and 390. Both excellent guns. Super soft shooting and reliable.

My semi-auto sporting gun is the Browning Maxus, the carbon fibre version. I don't think it is really carbon fibre but looks cool;^)

I have had zero issues with it and find the operating system simple and easy to use. I tend to use it for bad weather (often enough here in Colorado) and of course the 3 bird events. My wife has a couple Browning Golds but they have been around for years and can't speak to current production.

Have really enjoyed my walnut V3 on the skeet range.

Despite the slight raised rib on an 1100 sporting, the two that I have experience with shoot 50/50.

I have found that this rib design allows me to see targets a bit better, without the complexity and visual distraction of a higher rib. Your results may vary.
